    The five Math Minds principles have challenged what I know about math as a student and as a teacher. I used to believe that you are either a “math person” or a “non-math person”. Principles 2 and 3 challenge this through cognitive science where we should start to look at brains as ecosystems where there is no limit to the potential we have.
    I also thought it was interesting how there is a focus on having the student involved in the managing, pacing, and practicing of the new material. I think this is important yet it is rarely included in math lessons. We typically see a teacher “feeding” the new information to the students instead of them orienting and juxtaposing it to support learning.
